UPDATE: These uniforms will not be used for Cal football and basketball in in-game competition. Statement from Cal Athletics:
The catalog does not represent the Cal basketball uniform design for next season, which will be revealed at a later date. Instead, what is shown are generic shorts and jerseys that can be ordered by high schools and other schools for their uses.
Under Armour released their Fall/Winter 2017 catalog for basketball attire and accessories. The catalog contains styles and wear for teams that they sponsor and for HS/Youth/Rec teams to order gear. The surprise was that UA included both Cal and UC L.A.’s Basketball jerseys in the catalog. It remains to be seen if these will be the actual designs or whether they are just place holders until the reveal, which should happen soon after the new sponsorship deal kicks in on July 1st of 2017.
Here are the pictures pulled straight from the catalog.
So let’s talk about this design a little bit, it does seem that the Men’s and Women’s jerseys wont have any significant differences. First is an obvious difference is that in this potential design, we’ve moved away from “CALIFORNIA” on the front and to the abbreviated Cal script. As it stands the new uniforms are very simple designs. There has not been, and probably will not be any confirmations regarding the new on-court apparel for the Bears until the July 1st date.
Here is the link to the full catalog for those interested.
